my name is Ulli, and I am living in Germany. I was diagnosed with BC in Summer 2001, several lymph nodes involved. After Chemo and radiation I am now on Tamoxifen. But from what I read regarding new studies, Arimidex seems superior for my situation, possibly combined with a biphosphonate such as Chlodronate. However, my insurance would not pay for such treatment since it is currently not the standard here, and with german prices it would be more than 700 Dollar a month for me if I pay myself which is hardly affordable. Would anyone now about prices of these drugs (Arimidex and chlodronate or equivalent) in the States? It seems more common there, so it may be cheaper.
Best regards and good luck to all,
